Abstract: This paper deals with the assessment of the expected emissions of toxic substances from highly contaminated harbor dredged material. The material in question arises from the canal between Gent and Terneuzen in Belgium and The Netherlands, and has been landfilled at an engineered site at Zelzate in Belgium. While the material can be classified as extremely polluted, it is shown that the site can be considered safe and the solution responsible.
